Here is a close up of the door stripped. It was the color of the trim around it.
Here is the before and after of the shutters. I was very happy with the color, especially because we didn't have to take off the original stain first. We just added the darker color over the old.
Here is the in-between picture. We still have to stain the post and I need to clean up the flower beds and decorate for fall!!
Here are some pictures that are inspiring my fall decor this year. Fall is my favorite season. Of course these are from the all-knowing Martha Stewart :) check out http://www.marthastewart.com/ for more ideas!
Hope this inspires you too! I would love to see your fall decor. I will post pictures of my inside decorating when I get that done too!
